BC: Made By: Brianna Podominick

FC: The Railroad By: Brianna Podominick

1: The Union railroad train system was far more superior to Confederate railroad during the Civil War

2: By the fall of 1864, most Southern railways were taken over by Union armies | By the Spring of 1864 the Union had demolished most of the Southern railroads

3: From Georgia all the way through South Carolina, Sherman's men placed rails upon ripped up ties and set fire to them. The rails were wrapped around trees and nicknamed "Sherman's Neckties."

5: When the Union used the railroad, they used it for transporting soldiers and military goods to the South during the Civil War | The South lost most of their railroad to the North because they were fighting on their own land, so they didn't need to travel far to get military supplies

7: What did the railroad do during the Civil War? | The railroad helped the Union by making it faster and easier to travel to the South with military supplies | The railroad didn't really help the South, because most of their railroad was taken by the North

8: How large or small of a part did the railroad have on the Civil War?

9: The railroad had a large part in the Civil War because it helped by getting supplies, made it faster for the North to get soldiers there faster. In the South it had a small part because they didn't have to travel as far, and they didn't have as good of a supplies as the North did.

10: Who Benefited from the railroad during the Civil War? Who did not benefit from the railroad during the Civil War?

11: The North is the one that benefited from it the most, because they could have the supplies they needed to get there faster, instead of walking. | The South did not benefit from the railroad as much as the North did because they were on their "home" land, and didn't have to travel as far, and because they didn't have as much supplies

12: What if the railroad would have never been around during the War?

13: If the railroad wouldn't have been around during the war, the North would have had to walk all of their supplies down to the South, and it would have taken the North way longer then using the railroad to travel down there. It wouldn't have mattered to the South because they didn't use the railroad very much.

14: Would life have been different during the Civil War without the railroad?

15: Life would have been different during the Civil War if the railroad had not been around. The reason it would be different is because the North would have had to walk down to the South, and their supplies would have had to be carried down there.

16: Is the railroad still around today? Why or Why not?

17: Yes, the railroad is still around to day. It has just been modernized a lot more then it was back in the Civil War. The railroad has been used for much more the transporting military supplies. The railroads are used to transport paper, live stock, wood, and people.
